UK PM Survives Confidence Vote After Brexit Humiliation

0Shares

LONDON — British Prime Minister Theresa May on Wednesday survived a no-confidence vote sparked by the crushing defeat of her Brexit deal just weeks before the UK leaves the Euro­pean Union.

A stunning 24-hour span saw May on Tues­day dealt the heaviest drubbing by parliament in modern British political history — 432 votes to 202 — over the divorce terms she reached with Brussels.

She emerged victorious in parliament’s first no-confidence vote in a British govern­ment in 26 years on Wednesday by a 325-306 margin, a majority of 19.

But it may have only been a pyrrhic victory for the hobbled but determined premier as she tries to steer the world’s fifth-biggest economy through its biggest crisis in a generation.
